Counter Notification

If Trip Trustees receives the above notice, Trip Trustees will make a good-faith effort to contact the person responsible for posting the allegedly protected material, so that they can make a counter notification, as described below. If Trip Trustees receives a counter notification, it reserves the right to reinstate the material in question. If a counter notification is received, Trip Trustees will provide a copy of it to the person providing the notice and inform them that Trip Trustees will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days. Trip Trustees will then replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it not less than 10, nor more than 14, business days following receipt of the counter notice, unless its designated agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the notice that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the subscriber from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Trip Trustees’ system or network.

The following items must be included in a counter notification, which can be submitted by fax or regular mail:

1. Identify with specificity the URL or other identifying information of the material that Trip Trustees has removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.

2. Provide your name, address, phone number, email address and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or any judicial district in which you may be found if your address is outside the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or that person’s agent.

3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
